Have you ever wanted to be kissed inappropriately by Richard Dawson in front of your whole family? Or make a Faustian deal with Monte Hall? Well, Old School Game Show (OSGS) is the next best thing. Come and run your fingers through our shag carpet detailed, Family Feud style corrals. This isn't your parents trivia game. Oh, wait … your parents were pimps? Then it's exactly like that. It's as much fun as a fondue key party and as action packed as Lonnie Anderson's tube top. Feel the adrenaline rush when you step toe-to-toe in our buzzer-based trivia extravaganza.

OSGS is a live interactive theatre experience done with all the pageantry and analog style of a 1970's television game show. The show combines elements of pub trivia, variety specials, and comedy sketches to produce a completely unique trivia experience that tests players pop culture acumen. With influences as vast as vaudeville, Pee Wee's Playhouse, Andy Kaufman, and Battle of the Network Stars how could you go wrong? Surprise guests and characters include; a washed-up C-List celebrity puppet who hosts his own round as well as a talking robot with an identity crisis. The entire show is backed by an amazing live band playing original OSGS music. It's all the fun of an afternoon spent rolling around in the rumpus room without the rugburn.

When you arrive at the show the lovely usher who takes your ticket will ask you if you are interested in playing the game (you also have the option of just watching the show, you kinky bastard). If you would like to play you will recieve a name tag and your name will be placed in our official OSGS fishbowl. At the beginning of the show 8 selected contestants will be called up to the stage (Price is Right Style) and divided into two teams to compete in the first round. The winning team of each round will win fun, retro prizes and the losing team's lowest-scoring members will be replaced with new contestants. This continues for 8 rounds (each round is a completely new original category) until only 1 team remains. The final team's members square off against one another, Highlander style, until there is one final Old School Game Show Champion!
